Kevin Joseph Carr, of Mesa, AZ, formally of Fairfield, NJ, passed away peacefully on March 4th, 2022, at the age of 60. Kevin lived most of his life in Fairfield, NJ before moving to Arizona to live and be cared for by his loving sister Karen. He spent most of his life participating in programs run by the ARC of Essex County. The ARC Adult Activity Center is where he enjoyed bowling, delivering meals on wheels and where he learned how to navigate the computer and the world wide web. That knowledge helped him unlock a whole new world when Apple came out with the IPad. He had an uncanny ability to find anything you could imagine about the NY Yankees, fire trucks and games that would allow him to drive. He loved to watch every Yankee ballgame and in the off season would watch reruns of classic Yankee games. He also loved to watch classic TV series and game shows from the 60’s and 70’s. How he found them, we’ll never know. He looked forward to his weekly Dunkin Donuts Dunkaccino that his nieces would deliver after school, then later in life, his Arizona caregivers would bring him to Dunkin to pick it up himself. Nothing went better with Dunkin than his Oreo cookies.
Kevin was predeceased by his loving parents and lifelong caregivers, Victoria and Ronald Carr. Kevin is survived by his sister Karen Carr Wojcik of Mesa, AZ and brother Ronald Carr Jr. and his wife Annette of Wayne, NJ. He was a loving Uncle to Marissa West and her husband Mark, Alexis and Shannon Wojcik, Annalise and ErinRose Carr. He is also survived by a great-niece and great-nephew, and many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. He will be missed by his caring and compassionate caregivers Kathy, Virginia and Andrea. We will always be grateful they were part of Kevin’s life.
Donations in his memory may be made to The ARC of Essex County, 123 Naylon Ave., Livingston, N.J. 07039.
Arrangements were made by A Wise Choice Cremation & Funeral Services, Mesa, AZ. Interment at George Washington Memorial Park Cemetery, Paramus, NJ in late April.
